In brief: No

Vestibular neuritis is, by definition, inflammation of the balance nerve.
As such, hearing is unaffected.

In brief: No

Vestibular neuritis is an inflammation of the nerve of balance in your inner ear.
Sometimes the inflammation also involves the adjacent nerve of hearing - which would cause hearing loss, but the presence of vestibular neuritis itself does not directly cause hearing loss now or in the future.
